What’s On My Amazon Kindle Bookshelf

When I was younger, before Amazon Kindle even existed, I used to be such a bookworm. I had three bookcases at home filled with all my books. At some point, I started worrying I’d run out of space (my family house wasn’t incredibly big!).

Then, one day, I found a forum online talking about e-books and e-book readers. Until then, I had no idea that was even a thing! If my memory doesn’t fail me, that was around early 2000s (millennial baby here 😁).

I still lived in Greece and, at the time, e-books and e-book readers were not something you could buy from the shop. Even online, you had to order it from Ebay or something, pay loads in shipping fees and wait 1-2 months to have it delivered.

Long story short, I bought it second-hand from a Greek website similar to Gumtree the old fashioned way – I went met the guy face to face, gave him the money and he gave me his original Kindle (you know the one with the keyboard! 😍).

To this day I still have, use and love my Kindle. I’ve stocked it up with so many books since I got it and I go through phases of using it and then forgetting about it and then remembering it again.

I still love paperback books, however, I adore the convenience of an e-book reader, especially when you go on holiday.

Before e-books, I could pack max 2-3 books in my suitcase. Who remembers Rory Gilmore packing her school bag so full with books she had to carry one in her hands? Yeah, that was me! 🙈

But, ever since I got my Kindle, it gave me a newfound freedom. Now, I could carry ALL of my books -hell, my whole bookcase if I wanted to- with me everywhere.

I still buy my favourite books in paperback form, but my go-to book format is mobi or epub. These days Amazon has developed the Kindle app, too, meaning I can even read my books on my iPhone if I’m really short of space! 😎

Anyway, enough with all the rumbling! The reason I wanted to write a post about what’s on my Amazon Kindle bookshelf is because I find it’s a bit like the “What’s in my bag” videos.

I like being nosy and seeing what books other people are reading. 😅 I think it makes interesting content!
